MusicBee is a musical Swiss Army Knife and I can see why so many people like it. Where do we begin?
Let’s start with music management. You can listen to your music and categorize your collection in an appropriate manner with help of the program’s array of utilities to help edit and find tags. You have your music arranged by genre, artist, album or other tags at your choice in the left panel, while other small panes display the current play tracks, song details, artwork and lyrics and a search tool to quickly locate any specific artist or track.
The top toolbar is configurable and it helps you access playlists and Internet services such as music explorer, podcasts, radio stations, audio books, SoundCloud search and more. You can import music from your personal music folders as well as from iTunes or Windows Media Player libraries.
The player itself has an impressive range of controls such as a 10-band equalizer with presets, along with a preamp, digital signal processing plug-ins, an AutoDJ and a volume analyzer to normalize your collection so that you never have to touch the volume control again.
The package also includes a CD ripper with secure CD ripping with AccurateRip verification, a CD burner and a file converter. MusicBee supports the following formats: MP3, OGG, WMA, AIFF, ALAC, APE, BWF, CDA, FLAC, M3U, MP4, PLS, TTA, WAV, TAK, SPX.
